HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) June 15, 2020
Throughout the Coronavirus crisis, Nuvision Credit Union has stayed dedicated to its core mission and values. For over 85 years, Nuvision has been serving the hard-working people who are the backbone of our country; now, they are helping the next generation get through the COVID-19 crisis.
Through their NuvisionCares initiative, a program that helps hard-working people get back to work by providing much-needed income to small business owners, Nuvision Credit Union is helping Think Together’s Shalimar Learning Center raise funds for families who have lost their income during the COVID-19 crisis. Throughout June, Nuvision will be collecting non-perishable food and goods like household paper goods, diapers, and formula. The items will be donated to families with students enrolled in the organization’s afterschool programs.
For over 25 years, the Shalimar Learning Center has been providing a safe afterschool place for kids to get help with homework, prepare for college, and set themselves up for future success. The Shalimar Learning Center serves low-income families and students; people who work every day to build a better life for themselves.
Many of the parents of these students are hourly workers — housekeepers, gardeners, restaurant workers, and hotel personnel — without severance benefits. When the Coronavirus crisis hit, many of them went from working full-time jobs to being forced out of work.
“As we navigate through the COVID-19 crisis, we don’t ever want to forget who we are. As a credit union, one of Nuvision’s core commitments has always been serving our members and the communities where they live. Our dedication to this mission has never been stronger, and as we move forward and learn to navigate through these difficult times, we want to be a light at the end of the tunnel for our members and our communities,” said Barbara A. Barry, Chief Member Experience Officer at Nuvision Credit Union.
“When we heard Shalimar Learning Center’s story, we knew we had to help, and we knew our NuvisionCares program was the way to do it. Since the crisis hit, Nuvision has provided almost 10,000 meals to frontline healthcare workers and has helped 14 small restaurant owners stay in business and provided paychecks for their hard-working employees. We hope extending our NuvisionCare’s program to the Shalimar Relief Fund can make a huge impact on our next generation and help see them through the crisis.”
If you would like to get involved or make a donation to help expand the program, Nuvision has a GoFundMe campaign where they will use 100% of the donations for the Shalimar Relief Fund.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Nuvision Credit Union has been helping hard-working people financially survive the crisis through its NuvisionCares program.
